Holographic Silver Polka Dots!

I do so very much enjoy a good mail package, as I've sighed over on multiple occasions.  Particularly excited was I when I received a new, surprisingly large pot of holo silver glitter in the mail from ebay.  It's quite a small glitter and I was so sorely tempted to do full Mermaid Nails with it but alas, alack, it is hard to fine the probable two hours that full coverage with glitter this small would take.  I had to use it, so time for glitter polka dots instead!

To start with, I added two coats of Revlon Midnight Affair, a lovely deep blue.  Application was really nice on this one, you could easily stay with two coats.  Then, following the steps here but spacing the glitter out more, I covered each of my nails with the holo silver glitter.  THIS IS SO SPARKLY I DON'T EVEN KNOW....THINGS....SPARKLYYYYYYYYY.  The elevator at work has lovely down lights and everyone looked at me funny today as I couldn't stop waving my hands around under the lights.  It seriously looks like I have LEDs on my nails, it's that spangly. 






Gratuitous blurred shot.  Imagine this but at least twice as sparkly.






















The Verdict: Revlon Midnight Affair is a really nice deep navy blue, if it's possible you don't have something like this already. The glitter on the other hand, OMG SO SPARKLY I AM ACTUALLY LEAVING IT ON FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS WHICH NEVER EVER HAPPENS :D

  6. I LOVE THIS!!! I just recently tried hand placing glitter (thanks to you!) with smallish gold hexes over Revlon Vixen and was obsessed with it for like 4 days - a crazy long time for me to not change my nails! You are so good at this, though, my hand-placing wasn't nearly as neat as yours! How do you do it!?

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
